Well I got the pics of my car after media blasting for ya guys who were interested in seeing it. I cant believe its actually in real good shape from what I have seen!! I'm so excited to get this thing painted!.



















Its amazing how you can see how good our cars were made after its been stripped. The people who put these together were just amazing engineers.


Thanks to everyone who has helped me so far! I'm back in the saddle and ready to keep going on this project now!!

Thanks,
JC

Jeremy - Is it dusty or does it just look dusty?

I would add coats of POR on every possible part that is unseen - inside the fenders, under the car etc - Right now the metal has no protection whatsoever and is more so vulnerable to rust. So, I wouldnt leave the shell sitting this way for long. I would get it primered at least. I could be wrong, but so I have read!

EDIT - Have Kevin pop dents out as well ASAP! Without shiny paint, the dents should be easy to spot!

Its still at the shop where its being done. they have like 2 more things to do for me then its going straight over to the place where its getting Primed then its either going to pain or to a storage spot (inside) for the winter just depends on how everything is going at the time.

JC

Also they treat all the metal. So It will be OK at there shop for another week or to then it goes straight to primer. and its just dusty KC no worries. lots of Dust/ old paint particles and media blasting material. gonna have to blow it out air or something but the shop thats priming can do that.
Thanks,
JC

Cool - just saying. Have the body shop hook a huge hose up to a drum of paint thinner and wash her down real good! That pesky dusty can cause havoc

Which shop is priming/painting the car?

Hopefully your painter knows this, but usually primer is porous unless sealed. Do not leave it in primer alone for too long unless he can seal it in some way. Now in fall when it is rainy and in spring are the worst times to have plain primer.

Why did you leave the rear engine mount in place? It is only 4 bolts to remove it?

Other than that, AWESOME WORK!!

KC, it would actually make it a lot easier to spot dents with a shiny paint on it. That's why body work is tough to get in one shot.

See if you can get it primed with epoxy primer or some other urethane (2 part) that will seal it. Usually just straight primer can last for a while, but you're still going to be introducing the risk of rusting underneath the primer and not seeing it for a few years.

^^^yeah, i'd suggest priming, and have them chase little dents with something shiny. once thats done. get someone really good to seal it. the sealers are usually not sandable, but they do an awesome job if done right. think you got it under control though. VERY NICE!!!
